Terra at Eataly Boston
Water Michael was awesome
Great service and lovely location
Expensive for a small lunch. Average bottle of wine $56.00.
My husband and I both ordered pasta dishes, I thought I'd try the hand rolled rye pasta with asparagus, morels and radish. It was sad and gray in color and on the salty side. Portion was about a cup and a half, served in a bowl that looked like it had been used for 20+ years. $32 definitely was not worth it and my husband felt the same about his dish. Definitely would not go back.
Finding the venue in the larger Eataly facility was challenging. Once we got seated the meal was great. It did get a little loud as the number of diners grew. Really enjoyed it!
The food was excellent especially the grilled octopus appetizer and the ravioli entree. However, the most remarkable feature of our dining experience was the outstanding service. Our waiters, Mike and Max, were simply superb. Helpful, friendly and unobstrusive. Will definitely return.
If I could give 0 stars I would. This is a tourist trap. I will start off by telling you, do not go to the restrooms. You will think you are walking into the kitchen as it is a back hallway with no signs. No tissues, paper towels, dirty and dark. Next then Service, rude and abrupt.. basically get in and get out. Don’t eat the bread, if you look at it and pick it up you will realize it is as hard as a rock, along with the oil with no seasoning in it. The pasta was inconsistent, some bites were soft, others were under cooked pasta. If you want good Italian, go to the North End.
Amazing place! I wish we arrived earlier to explore Eataly before our reservation at Terra. The restaurant is amazing and I could not get over the glass ceiling. Food was the BEST we had during our Boston trip. GO HERE FOR ITALIAN. Staff was excellent and helpful- will come back every time we are in town. Must eat here.
John was our server and Henry would fold our napkins whenever someone from our party would get up for the bathroom. They were so endearing and fun! Would definitely go back for the two of them and the fantastic food! Rigatoni and the burrata were both outstanding.
Food was overly salty and did not taste fresh
Second time dining. Great room. Great staff. Remain underwhelmed by food. Expect more.
We went to Terra for lunch during a business meeting. The food and service were excellent. The only downside was that they couldn’t accommodate a large group and we had to split up on two different tables. Otherwise everything was great! Highly recommended!
Reservation was for 7:45 and we ended up being seated at 8:30 and it was a monade night. Too bad because the pasta and deserts were excellent.
Our dinner took over an hour to get to us, after about 45 minutes the waiter seemed to notice and the restaruant manager came over and was very apologetic. Tables around us were being seated, ordering, and eating before our entrees came. It’s a bummer because the food is delvious
We have eaten at the Pizza and Pasta restaurant in Eataly with our family a few times and always enjoy it. This time, we wanted to try Terra, and were not disappointed. Fun, family style dining. Great food, lots of options for everyone. The swordfish skewers were especially delicious...Actually, everything was delish.
Not an inexpensive dinner, but still, good value for the quality and overall experience.
The food was incredible!!! Would’ve liked a little more direction and attentiveness from our waiter, but it was a really great meal with delicious wine!
Food was good. Charcuterie was delicious. Shrimp skewers and burrata bruschette was delicious. Veal and pork penne was amazing. No take home containers so we had to leave what we didn’t eat which was a shame. Service was okay. It’s expensive and very very noisy. We went for a bday celebration and we couldn’t even talk to each other across the table it was so loud. Probably wouldn’t go back just didn’t “wow” me.
Scenery is best part - beautiful inside. Food is small portions and way over priced. Tables are very close together and we were bumped by people passing by throughout our meal. We were seated after someone without a reservation.
Came for a graduation celebration and got there a bit early - we were seated right away! Service was great and food was outstanding! So glad I celebrated here.
Bruschetta was excellent. The spaghetti pomodoro was absolutely delicious - wish I knew how to make that sauce. The "grilled" salad (they slightly grill the lettuce) was also delicious - the slight grilling of the lettuce made it very tasty. Being on the top floor of Eataly, and with the huge skylights, it feels like you're in an outdoor terrace, which I really liked. Will definitely come back again and try some of the other dishes.
Beautiful setting however, very disappointing dining experience. The most basic of menu items was not even close to on par with the quick eats/counter food downstairs at the marketplace. One would be better off purchasing a package of prosciutto and buffalo mozzarella and sitting on the stairs leading up to Terra.
Terra's buffalo mozzarella was dry and rubbery with no flavor - tasted like chewing on a super ball and the pasta was flat and tasteless. These are very simple, pure flavors and Terra fell dramatically short on all fronts.
Very nice meal.
Terra is always amazing! It is my favorite restaurant in Boston. The staff is warm, engaging, talented and offer impeccable customer service. The food is creative and absolutely delicious. It is a vibrant, chic environment that is both causal and edgy at the same time. It is a must try!
Excellent food, but for the price you're paying, add two or three dollars to an entree, and you could order something similar for the same price at a high end steakhouse and get a better meal. It feels a bit on the hipster side. I say this because a very generous sized chicken Milanese entree (translation: enormous) was served on what you'd normally put a cheese board platter on. So was my husband's lamb skewers. To look fancy and high end, full entrees are served on wooden cheese board style platters. I wasn't the only person in the restaurant that day that asked for a real plate so I could eat the food without making a giant mess. The service was friendly, but very slow. I think the price point for this restaurant is because 1) You're in the Prudential Mall and 2) Because it's Eataly.
It is a good place for a date night. The portion sizes are small but the food is delicious!
The lighting where we were sitting made it hard to read the menu.
The food was delicious and we'll prepared. Went for a graduation celebration and the staff was very accommodating. Fun atmosphere too.
Outstanding service and just really good food. Can’t go wrong with just about anything. Don’t be thrown off by how “trendy” it is - the food and service is actually worth the hype.
I really don't get the hype. Food was good, but some of it very overpriced, like two little pieces of swordfish for $12. We were looking out on the roof of a building - - so much for looking out at the hubub of Eataly. I won't be going back.
My first experience was amazing. Food was some of the best food I’ve tasted. Flavor was the perfect amount when I got a meat dish.
lovely atmosphere, knowledgable staff on wines and food, good food, being an Italian restaurant we would have liked some latest italian music. Overall I would recommend the experience.
Excellent! Here in Boston celebrating my daughters birthday. Eataly was the perfect place. Delicious food and fantastic service. Will definitely be back.
Wonderful time!! Food was delicious and service was exceptional
The food was good. However, the service was very slow.
Platos muy pequeños, caros, demasiado simples y nada especial en su sabor.
I am generally a big fan of Eatly but Terra wasn't up to the usual Eatly standard. Food and service were average. We waited nearly 30 minutes to get seated despite having a reservation and the noise level was too loud to really have a conversation. All and all, not a great experience and not worth the money.
We loved food and service. The music did not match the quality of the food. I think they could use a professional to curate Italian playlist to contribute to the ambience. And less noisy for conversation’s sake.
